Proto Labs is set to attend TCT Show and Personalize 2013, where visitors to the company’s booth will be able to view live demonstrations of, and try out, the Protoquote and Firstquote online quoting systems.

Proto Labs delivers custom CNC-machined and injection-moulded parts in as little as one working day. Its online quoting systems — Protoquote for injection-moulded parts and Firstquote for CNC-machined parts — provide cost and manufacturability analysis quotations, accessed via the company’s websites.

After loading a 3D CAD part, customers receive a clear, simple and non-technical quote, incorporating costs, material choices and, where appropriate, suggestions for changes to parts in order to improve manufacturability and/or tooling and part cost.

Event information

  • Date: 25–26 September 2013
  • Venue: Birmingham, UK
  • Stand number: G30

Proto Labs

Proto Labs delivers fully functional prototypes in production-intent materials to dramatically cut the cost and time normally associated with product development. This empowers designers and engineers with the means to rapidly develop, test, and get their products to market first in an ever-competitive global market place.

Protomold delivers injection-moulded parts from moulds manufactured utilising state-of-the-art high-speed CNC machining technologies. Parts can be moulded using almost any engineering-grade resin and are ideal for prototyping, bridge tooling and low-volume production.

First Cut satisfies the need for functional prototypes much earlier in the development cycle for quantities of 1–10+. Because First Cut delivers prototypes in engineering-grade resins and aluminium they will have real material properties and improved surface finishes. In other words, they will be functional.

When you submit your 3D CAD model, Proto Labs’ powerful super-compute cluster creates an interactive quote giving pricing options and where appropriate, suggesting changes to improve manufacturability. You simply interact with your quote online, tailor options such as material and delivery to your requirements and with every change, the pricing information automatically updates. This built-in ‘what-if’ analysis enables last-minute project refinements to be accommodated at the click of a button.
